In my recent article on Jordy Mercer’s bat, I referenced an article from the past that projected Jordy Mercer’s defense to be outstanding enough to make him very valuable despite the weak bat he was showing at the time. I have since found the article I was talking about and the discussion of it on BucsDugout.
Here is the BucsDugout discussion begun by WHYG Zane Smith.
Here is the FanGraphs article that he linked to that mentions Jordy Mercer and his OLIVER projection.
OK, now I can sleep better knowing I didn’t leave a phantom reference. :)
